Pink Leopard Hearts

I can't wait for valentines day, so I made a valentine mani. I tried to make hearts out of the leopard pattern. I think it is cute and subtle. I used bling dynasty by opi for the gold and essie flawless for the pink.

NYX Lip Butter Lip Gloss Swatches

Hi again! Here are nyx lip butter swatches. They are amazing lip glosses. They smell good, they are not too sticky, and they are pigmented. The only thing that I do not like is that some of the colors are a little sheer on pigmented lips. Which are most of the lighter colors and some dark colors,raspberry tart and devils food cake. They all still look amazing though, just not as vibrant.
For darker skin tones, my favorites are the browns shades, praline and ginger snap, as well red velvet, strawberry parfait,  peach cobbler, raspberry tart, and devils food cake.

Red velvet is a super pigmented  bright red. I love that one the most, though!

 I would not recommend fortune cookie for dark skin tones. That one is meh, but the good thing about them is that they are buildable glosses, so you can have a light swatch of color on your lips and it will not look horrible.

I would recommend these for dark skin if you want a light glossy look. For fairer skin, the dark colors will definitely be a bolder color.

Hope you are doing well!

Wash n Go on 4c hair

Hey there! I wanted to try a wash n go today, so I washed my hair today. Detangled with a conditioner( the trea tree oil one from trader joes), washed it out and applied eco styling gel ( the brown one) while my hair still was still wet. I am pretty sure my hair type is 4c. I have curls but most are not defined well. I have a considerable amount of shrinkage. Boo. But I still love the style. It is still a little wet. It takes forever for my hair to dry. 

NYX roll on shimmer swatches

Nyx almond

Nyx purple

NYX roll on shimmer in almond and purple. Here are some eyeshadow I got from nyx. They are shimmery and so lightweight. I love them. The only thing is they are better with primer underneath to keep the color from fading easily.these are swatched without primer underneath.

Hope you are doing well!

Dry Marble #2

Here is another dry marble. This technique is fun and less messy compared to water marble. I pretty much suck at that marble, anyway these colors are all shades and tones of pink. Essie splash of grenadine, sinfulcolors soul mate, and essie cant film fest. My thumb got damaged, but I liked the pattern and I did not want to do it over. :-p

Pink Makeup Overload: Wet N Wild Spoiled Brat Swatches and Fotd

Pink! Pink and more Pink! This is Wet N Wild Spoiled Brat. This palette is surprisingly good. The silver is an amazing, beautiful pigmented shimmer. That is what makes this palette shine. Of course I love anything pink, although I wish the pink shade was a tad bit more pigmented as the color blends more with my skin tone. I swatchedthese without   primer, but for my fotd I used nyx eyeshadow primer.

Here Is My Wet N Wild Collection...so far....Megalast Lip Swatches on Dark Skin

Here is my wet n wild megalast lipstick collection so far...With labels on the swatches this time. I love these. I repotted them though because I didn't like the tubes. I am going to buy more to get more of a range of colors. Stay tuned for more swatches!

Update: I swatched the wet n wild megalast  lipsticks neutrals again hoping to show the colors pop more.
  • These are all very neutral shades on dark skin. My lips are pigmented brown so it tones down the undertones.
  • Mocha-licious is a brownish pink on me it is very similar to spiked with rum and sand storm. They are all brownish on me.
  • Spiked with rum is a little more pink.
  • In the flesh is a light pink more toned down neutral.
  • Ravin raisin is a light fuchsia on me
  • Cherry bomb is a standard red on me. Perfect undertones for my dark skin tone.

Top left is dollhouse pink, a bubblegum pink.
Top right is mauve outta here, a muted light pink.
Bottom left is purty persimmon,an orange. 
Bottom right is sugar plum fairy, a reddish pink.

Hope you are doing well!

I'm His Breezy - swatches and review

Here is my fotd. I used I'm His Breezy palette by Wet N Wild. It is an okay palette. The colors are a little chalky and some are not that pigmented. The browbone especially is not pigmented well. These swatches are all without primer. 

On my face I used nyx eye primer to get more pigmentation on the eyeshadow.I used  ruby kisses foundation in caramel, and la femme blush in orange. For my lips I used a wet n wild clear lip gloss.

Neutral Holiday Fotd

Here is a neutral face, with copper eyes! I am off to a low key holiday party. 

For my face I used ruby kisses all over glow for eyeshadow, a no name brown lipstick, and la femme blush in plum frost. I love plum frost. It gives a little bit of shimmer to the cheeks. 

I should also do something with my eyebrows but I do not want to look like I am constantly mad or some other weird look. I will play around more with makeup...maybe even trying with eyelashes! My hair was curled using curlformers and pinned under.

Eye of the Day: Metallic Silver

I am trying metallic for the holidays. Today is silver. I am not much of a silver person, but I wanted to try it to see if it would grow on me. I think metallic eyeshadows look really good on dark skin because they really pop. I am going to find some silver glitter or more silver pigments now.  I think tomorrow I will try gold/bronze for Christmas Eve. But today here is silver metallic eye with the eyeshadow palette Blue Had Me at Hello.

Hope you are doing well!

Blue Had Me At Hello

Here is a wet n wild eyeshadow palette that I have had  for a while but never swatched, blue had me at hello. I really like this palette as the colors are very shimmery. The blacks though are a little disappointing. They are not that pigmented and the shimmery one with glitter barely shows the glitter. But overall i like this pallete. Good for smokey blue eyes.
